This is a very large beautiful green park right in the middle of Denver surrounded by beautiful neighborhood. Built on what use to be a cemetery where most of the graves were never removed so you’re actually walking, laying, playing and relaxing on ground that has thousands of dead below you. Kinda eerie.

This is a lovely park where people were walking dogs, jogging or enjoying the warm sun on a winter's day. It has a lovely neoclassic pavilion in the park as well.

Wonderful large and open lawn space with room for frisbee, football toss, volleyball, walking the dog, and walking around the park on the sidewalk. Pretty flower gardens by the pavilion and the pavilion itself is beautiful. Great place to relax!

Cheesman park is one of the oldest parks in the Denver area. It was originally a cemetery. The contractor who was tasked with moving the graves was paid by the casket. He allegedly cheated the city by faking the movement of hundreds of graves. Many were never moved and are still on the grounds. Hauntings in the area were the inspiration for the movie "Poltergeist."…
